From Federation of Earth Science Information Partners
Back to Partnership -- The following nine applications have been posted for review by the Partnership Committee
ESIP Reps will get an email with the voting information.
COOPEUS - ESIP-I (primarily data centers)
- Application excerpt: The role of COOPEUS is to guide and coordinate interoperability efforts among environmental research infrastructures in the EU and US. COOPEUS itself does not produce technology or infrastructure but all COOPEUS partners have independent contributions in their domains. All COOPEUS partners have independently developed software that are registered with the GEOSS Brokering Service and are freely available to the public.

E-DECIDER - ESIP-II (primarily research)
- Application excerpt: E-DECIDER provides decision support primarily for earthquake disaster response. The platform converts geophysical simulations and remote sensing observations into data products relevant to emergency preparedness and response communities. We utilize remote sensing data and Earth science models to respond to disasters and working in partnership with the Disasters cluster and the Federation would enhance collaboration with other projects in the field as well as provide the opportunity to test our platform.

GeoGateway - ESIP-II (primarily research)
- Application excerpt: NASA's GeoGateway project (formerly QuakeSim) for earthquake geodetic imaging analysis, modeling, and response. Provides analysis tools for NASA geodetic imaging data products including UAVSAR, GPS, and InSAR. Provide analysis, modeling, and response tools.
Geological Data Center, SCRIPPS - ESIP-I (primarily data centers)
- Application excerpt: The GDC has been curating and providing access to oceanographic data for more than 40 years. In the current era, the emphasis is on collaborative projects that create integrated access to well-described digital oceanographic data on institutional, national, and international scales. The GDC also curates an archive of analog data products from the past century of exploration by Scripps Institution of Oceanography.
Kitware - ESIP-III (primarily applications)
- Application excerpt: Kitware Inc. supports creation and development of open-source software and state of the art technology related to computing and visualization. Kitware and Mr. Aashish Chaudhary has been involved in various open source projects related to earth and climate science. The Kitware Site-PI of UV-CDAT, Aashish Chaudhary, has been leading the open source ClimatePipes project with NYU. ClimatePipes Phase-I and II are funded by DOE. It is web- based, multi-faceted software project that combines social networks, graphical user interfaces, data-flow networks, data provenance, and existing high- performance software libraries. Also, Mr. Chaudhary and other Kitware developers have contributed significantly to the core feature of UV-CDAT. Mr. Chaudhary is the SITE- PI for the project. As part of this project, he has been collaborating with NASA, NOAA, DOE, and other universities. Also, Mr. Chaudhary is the SITE-PI for the Accelerated Climate Modeling for Energy (ACME) project and has been a member of the Earth System Grid Federation (ESGF). His collaborators include scientist from NASA (JPL, Ames, Goddard), NOAA, Unidata, IOOS, USGS etc. ￼￼Some of the other open souce tools and projects developed by Kitware are; ParaView, ParaViewWeb, VTK, ITK, and CMake.
Marymount University - ESIP-II (primarily research)
- Application excerpt: The Department of Information Technology at Marymount University offers program s in Data Science and Applied Information Technology. Myself, and other faculty members, use the Earth sciences as a primary application area for our teaching and research. I also currently serve as Chair of ESIP's Semantic Web Cluster.
Purdue Libraries - ESIP-II (primarily research)
- Application excerpt: Purdue University's dedication to study the Earth Sciences is illustrated in the numerous departments and research centers performing world-class research and teaching in many disciplines from the Earth Sciences. In the College of Science, the research agenda includes atm osphere/surface interaction, clim ate and extrem e weather, geology and geophysics. In the College of Agriculture, one finds agriculture and biological engineering, environmental soils and landscape processes, plant biochemistry, botany and plant pathology, forestry and natural resources.

UC Berkeley Libraries - ESIP-I (primarily data center)
- Application excerpt: The Library Data Lab has a critical role in the UC Berkeley Library's implementation of OpenGeoportal. We're currently working on developing new metadata workflows for geospatial data. In addition, the Data Lab plays an important role in supporting data use publication across all disciplines.
UNAVCO - ESIP-I (primarily data center)
- Application excerpt: UNAVCO, a non-profit university-governed consortium, facilitates geoscience research and education using geodesy. UNAVCO operates the National Earth Science Geodetic Facility, known as the Geodesy Advancing Geosciences and EarthScope (GAGE) Facility with NSF- and NASA-funded core funding. The GAGE Facility provides support to the NSF investigator community for geodesy, related research, education and workforce training with broad societal benefits. NSF-funded geodesy investigators are active on every continent, across a broad spectrum of the geosciences and facilitated by UNAVCO data, engineering, and education services.
